Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

I hope it's not true, but it looks like Elena won't come out of this current form. She used to win these matches easily, and used to come back fiercely in tight third sets.
We may have seen her best a few years ago.

I'm sure many of you will disagree, but I fear that would be your wishful thinking.

Sad, 'cause she's a sweet girl.

Re: Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

sure, she's not a top five player anymore, but please don't compare her to the joke of a player that myskina has become.
her results are that of a solid top 15 player right now. she has never played well in canada and schiavone is in form right now. this isn't a loss that i am going to lose sleep over.
this is only the second time elena has lost in her opening match of a tournament all year. the other time was when she retired against likhovtseva.
she will come back strong next week.

Re: Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

I wouldn't compare it to Myskina's case. But I agree that both are dooooone.

Elena is just going through the motions by now. Her heart is not in the sport anymore. She shows no effort to improve her weaknesses. That's not going to cut it.
She will keep playing for a while because it's easy money, but her days as a top-player and title contender are gone.

Time will tell. She was always a sure fire contender for the QF or better, now we all hold our breath in the early rounds.

are you serious? she lost in the first round like 10 times in 2004. her results have improved immensely in consistency over the past few years. do you even follow her or no?

Re: Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

Lena lost in the first round in Canada to Dulko in 2004, then made the USO final.
She worked hard in California, and sometimes this tournament is not her priority.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

Every time she is losing this thread is coming....This is Lena, she have this kind of days, like every player. She had good 2 tournaments and perhaps her energy left her today, so what?!

Re: Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

its always the same, other top players lose silly matches and nothing is said, Lena does it and in come the twats etc, well its true today was dissapointing but its her first true early loss all year and it WAS to a decent enough player..I just cant understand why everytime Lena loses assholes have to come from under their rocks and proclaim utter doom, I expect it from the Likes of GoDom as they ARE an asshole and an utter twat, but why all the others?

Anyhow, today was a mess and Lena was crap, yes someday soon she will retire and then I guess someone else can get all the shit after a loss, in the meantime shes still here so put up or fuck up, shes still superior to any pointless wanker that frequents this board, that includes me too of course...while we are all sitting behind our computers typing shit and achieveing the square root of fuck all, shes the one with millions of $$ in the bank..

Re: Elena is free falling the same way Myskina did.

uh, Captain, your ship is sunk.

You can swear and call us all the names in your childish book of insults, but it's still sunk. If she reaches the QF of the Open I will publicly kiss your arse.
